Rear brake pedal rolls?

Is it a problem??? Not. Proper riding boots!!
Know you're not riding in smooth, flat-sole shoes. LOL
After market hand levers are available. $$$
But knurled billet foot pedals may not be so abundant for the new Roadster.
Rear brake pedal enlarger?

Does this help?
Other kits lower the foot pegs. Same pedals. Might be more comfortable.

YMMV Good Luck.

Never had a problem with this. I also only use my rear brake at stop lights on hills as I use only my front brake lever to enable use of linked braking.

Hey fleuger99, does combined braking works only if you use only the front lever??

This is from my 2012 R owner's manual:

"Partially integral brake

Your motorcycle is equipped with
a partially integral brake configu-
ration. Both front and rear brakes
are applied simultaneously when
you pull the handbrake lever.
The footbrake lever acts only on
the rear brake."

thanks Darcy but,
What happens if you press both, I learned riding on a non integral system so most of the time I use both brakes, if the R1200R is going to give me a more accurate balance between front and back, I think I will start using only the hand lever.

Wow i haven't been on in a while and i see lots of responses to my posts, I thank you all for the responses. You are right Clem i am just using tennis shoes mostly and since getting used to the dual braking of the front lever along with the abs it really is not an issue.
